Campy can be fun. But there's enough cheese here to cause sharp abdominal pains for the lactose intolerant. There are just enough good moments to keep watching to the end... and then I had to berate myself for wasting 86 minutes of my life.
Cheesy early nineties action film based on Zatoichi Challenged. Despite some significant faults (annoying kid actor, to much gun play, being a bit too long), the film has more fun with the concept than the 2003 remake by Takeshi Kitano. Hauer is always convincing and often funny and director Phillip Noyce makes good use of the playfulness that many of the original series had.
